Inspiration for Using Texture Decorative Dies

April 25, 2018

We all love Kaisercraft Decorative Dies and with more dies being released each month it is difficult not to keep changing the name of your “favourite” die!  Two of the latest dies released for this month are Texture dies.  These dies make adding a little texture to your projects simple and effective.

The design team has a stunning showcase of projects for you today.  It is amazing how versatile a simple die can be.  These projects demonstrate how each crafter can use a die and create a totally different layout or card expressing their individual crafting style.

“Remember” Layout with Texture Die by Jowilna Nolte

For my layout, I used a piece of scrap cardstock that had some left-over ink marks on it to die-cut my bricks out of. The ink marks leave a beautiful and interesting effect.
To further add interest I scattered some of the inner brick portions around the layout.

Decorative Dies NEW Product Open Road Renee Aslette Scrapbooking layout

Eungella Dam Layout using Open Road by Renee Aslette

December 14, 2017

Hi Kaisercraft Friends,

It’s Renee Aslette here today, to share with you a layout I created using the newly released Open Road Collection and the Map Of Australia Die Cut.

We have recently purchased a camper trailer, this collection was the perfect way to capture the memories of a fantastic week away visiting Eungella Dam.

Eungella Dam, is a beautiful camping area up in the Eungella Valley just out of Mackay in Far North Queensland.

To begin with, I created a mixed media background using some Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Refills on a 12 x 12 Weave Cardstock – Coconut.  The touch of blue was used to tie in with the camper in the photo.

I also added a torn strip of Corrugated Cardstock to the left and right of the layout.

I then got the new Map of Australia Die Cut out and cut 4,  using various patterned paper from the Open Road Collection.  When I received this die cut, I knew I would be using it as a feature on a layout.

I used a white pen to define the separation lines on the die and the border of the entire piece.

Here are some more close-ups:

The Collectables in this collections are stunning.  Perfect for any adventure.

I used the Kaisercraft Chipboard Alpha 2 for the title and coloured it with the same colours I used in the background of the layout minus the blue.

I hope you enjoyed this post.  Don’t be afraid to get those dies out and feature them on your layout.

Kaisercraft Products: Open Road Collection: P2442 Roaming (Reverse) | P2443 Undiscovered | P2444 Prospecting (Reverse) | P2446 Unchartered (Reverse) | P2450 Outback (Reverse) | SS353 Sticker Sheet | CT896 Collectables | DD468 Map of Australia Decorative Die | CB153 Corrugated Cardboard | CB108 Alpha #2.

OTHER: Tim Holtz Distress Oxide – Peeled Paint | Vintage Photo | Salty Ocean | White Pen

 

Happy Camping. xx
